  1. Hello. I'm starting at Mac Med in St Catharine's this fall. Am a single parent and am working on pulling together child care options. Am focusing first on the first 3 months as there will be a commute to Hamilton campus that will require extended child care 2-3 times per week. Wondering if there are any med parents at NRC (or elsewhere) that can recommend a live-out nanny. I'm looking at a variety of child care options and want to have a child care provider I can rely on in the AM and PM for the extended days i'll have to spend in Hamilton for MF1. Any leads would be much appreciated.
  2. I was accepted recently to McMaster's School of Medicine and will be moving close to their Niagara Regional Campus for 3 years. This is a listing for my home in Ottawa. I hope to rent it for the time my daughter and I are away. It might be perfect for incoming med students at Ottawa U. Beautiful and bright 3 bedroom townhouse for rent in Greenboro Ottawa. At the end of a row in a quiet and cozy cul-de-sac where children play basketball in the summer and slide down the snow removal mountain in the winter. A neighbour, on one side only, is an elderly “auntie” who knits socks for my little one and is very quiet. Hardwood floors throughout. Two bathrooms, recently renovated. Three spacious bedrooms with ample closet space. The master has a beautiful bay window that fills with purple blossoms when our crab-apple tree blooms in May. A cozy living room with a recently inspected and working gas fireplace. A spacious kitchen, recently renovated, has a dishwasher and extends to a bright dining area. A semi-finished basement has a washer and dryer and is great for storage or an artist’s workshop. I work out down there comfortably. A pantry/cold storage is shelved to hold supplies and your favourite bottles of wine. There are two lush and leafy trees in the front yard and our bird feeder is home to chickadees, a blue jay, and cardinals. A front porch is perfect for a morning cappuccino on a wrought-iron bistro set. A very big deck in the backyard is framed by a beautiful tree and full hedges for privacy. For summer lounging, the deck is fully equipped with a large patio set and working gas BBQ. Room for 1 car in the garage and 2 in the driveway. A 5-minute walk away from OC Transpo route #98 (gets you downtown in about 35 minutes) and a 10-minute bus ride to the O-Train’s Greenboro station. Grocery stores, South Keys shopping centre (Walmart, Bulk Barn, Chapters etc) great restaurants, community recreation centres, bike paths, public library and beautiful parks are close by. Rent is 1800 per month. Hydro, gas and internet are extra. This is a home that I cherish. My daughter and I will be absent from it for 3 years. We want to fill it with long-term tenants who love it as much as we do.
  3. lol ) Fortunately she is so far mostly a pleasure and on a rare occasion a pain. I want to make this transition as easy as I can for her but i imagine, ultimately, there will be some adjusting for both Mommy and her
  4. Hello I was recently offered admission to the Niagara regional campus and, as a single parent of a soon to be 5 year old, I'd like to learn more about schools and child care options in the area. If you or someone you know was/is a parent at the Niagara campus I would be very grateful to connect. Any pointers in the right direction would be very appreciated as I start my research Thanks

  12. Great work Richard and all the very best! I'm just discovering your thread/story now. I interviewed at Mac this cycle as well. I would have sent you good vibes. I hope everything works out fantastic for you.
  13. Thanks. I'm a single parent and am having serious second thoughts about leaving my home city where my support network is. Especially come clerkship. Am re-thinking a second degree (BSc) to allow me the option of applying to University of Ottawa. That option seems wisest but also like the time it will take to complete isn't feasible given that I'm 41. Not sure. Any non-trads on here with children?
